overcast and chilly when we visited yesterday for lunch. Great first impressions at the entrance where blankets and sunglasses were supplied if you fancied sitting outside overlooking the estuary. Warm and welcoming. The food was fantastic. One of our party can only eat gluten free dishes. To our surprise most were or with a slight adjustment can be. We will... More

Very impressed with the quality of food and service today. The roast beef was plentiful, rare, and succulent, potatoes crisp outside, soft and fluffy inside, and side vegetables, leeks, cabbage, and cauliflower cooked with th same level of care. The same can be said for the pork. Everything tasty and finely balanced, not too much nor too little. The child's... More

After previously having a disastrous evening with friends we were very apprehensive about returning. This was totally unfounded - we had a complementary evenings dining and massive apologies from the owner. The food was excellent and the mussels were the best I've EVER had. The whole evening and atmosphere was lovely, staff attentive but not 'in your face'. Now really... More

Following my last review the owner Amanda responded quickly and apologised for the evening we'd had subject of my earlier review. She invited us back for a meal on them and it was superb. She greeted us personally as did the (new) chef and apologised again for what had happened. We were treated to a superb meal with attentive but... More

My husband and I, with two friends, were invited back to the Heron Inn after a disappointing previous experience in January. I can honestly say with my hand on my heart our experience last night was light years away from the previous visit. I had mussels as a starter - I have never had mussels of that quality anywhere else,... More

Last minute decision to go for lunch with friends. Happily after phoning they were able to offer us a table and we walked from Malpas Road Park. Lovely warm welcome, excellent roast and a good selection of deserts. Unhurried service meant we did not have to rush and we had a really nice time. We will be back!

I hadn't been to The Heron for a long time and was interested to see how it had changed. My friend and I received a very warm welcome, drinks were discussed and the Specials board was indicated. The menu has something for almost everyone and we were spoilt for choice. As it was lunch my friend had pate and I... More
